Cosmic Pluralism / Re: Cosmic Era Progress Log
« Last post by Scrasamax on December 17, 2016, 11:41:54 AM »
I have thought about this some, now that I have words moving again, and the answer is complex and paradoxical.

For me its worth noting that everyone here on the Citadel is looking at the Cosmic Era from the backstage side, not the audience side. It is also a work in progress, and is in no way a finalized, polished, or collated product ready to be picked up and read/used/watched. I don't want to shape your feedback to what I'm writing, because that's not what I am wanting to shape. If I am trying to elicit a certain type of feedback I'm basically doing this for the wrong reason.

So I want your honest feedback, your critical feedback, about what looks good and what looks like s**t. I also want you to know that I am absolute s**t about accepting critical feedback and take it poorly. That being said, I am aware of it, and try to take it as intended and not the way it comes across to me.

Because sometimes my instinctive rebuttal to critical feedback boils down to 'Godd**n it, I don't @!#$ing work for you, you don't write me a paycheck, but you make more demands of my writing than my godd**n boss at works expects from me on my job there, and there I deal with chemicals, electricity, machines, and s**t that can literally @!#$ing explode'.

And that is kneejerk, instinctive, and wrong. And I know it's wrong, and I sit on that until it goes away. Because if you weren't interested, or didn't care about what I was writing, you wouldn't give critical or constructive feedback.

So the honest answer is for me to swallow my writer's pride and thank you for the critical feedback, but to ask you for more on the constructive side.

Yes, I know there are problems with the setting, and there are things that have needed to be changed, and have been changed. Some of them are little, others not so much. What started as playing with all the toys in the toybox 80s nostalgia is shaking out into it's more condensed form.

Summon magic, alien invaders, etc, are out, and no longer canon to the setting. I think you will support this.

Yay! I'm thrilled - as I'm sure we all are - that you're doing better. Still here if you need any support, though. Sometimes it's tough to sort through the aftermath of that level of s**t.

While we understand you have dad responsibilities and dad jokes to dispense, by being one of the instigators behind this RP idea, you are now morally obliged to find us a good third player!   :thumbup:
As Muro's vapenbroder, I take up his shield and task. I shall seek the player!

Apparently, we are still moving ahead with this thanks to Scras mainly and his Cosmic Era subs.  :thumbup: I'm somehow still 2nd due mainly to past efforts.

11:30 CET, Monday, unless you're on a Pacific island, perhaps it would be good to post a character? :D

Things have gotten better.

I am humbled by the generosity of my friends and my friends who are family.

One the larger scope, the fires are largely extinguished or contained, and the air is clear again (and hurts my face, 17 F when I got up this morning). I am feeling better, and less emotionally wrecked. The 13 year old who broke onto our porch will have charges pressed against her, not by us, but by the officer who filed the report.

I haven't been able to use the new lawnmower you guys sent me (on account of it raining or being below freezing almost everyday since it showed up in the mail), but I have been motivated enough to do some cleaning up in the yard. It is looking better, and I feel the garden this next year will be splendid.

We had storms roll through, and an EF-2 tornado passed within several hundred feet of our house. It destroyed a grocery store, a gas station, a tire and lube shop, hopped over us (there is a ridge) and tore through several housing developments and trailer parks. We lost almost everything in the fridge with a 20+ hour power outage. We feel lucky because we were hunkered down in the basement with the cats in luggage as the storms tore over us. We were blessed with just branches down in the yard and a fridge of spoiled food. We have already had friends send us stuff to replace what we lost.

And the final touch of kindness, unexpected, was a new truck. Well, a 1997 Ford F-150. It is a more dependable and solid vehicle than my current one, a POS 01 Kia Rio. My good friend Paul, (Chronicle Collectibles) bought himself a brand new Silverado with all the bells and whistles, said my car was a piece of s**t and gave me his old truck. It is a manual transmission, so I've been learning how to drive a stick the last 2 weeks.

I've been writing again, here mostly.

I dont know what else to say, but to say thank you again.

You are all awesome.
